All about quality but...

Pros: - Seems of very good quality to me, came with absolutely no visible defects

- Metal casing facilitate heat dissipation

- Most important thing to me, a fan!

Cons: - Only con is no base; I will DIY one out of a thin slat ( and paint it ) myself to be sure it does not tip over on side.

Fan rattles... I really don't like it!

Other Thoughts: I did not try it yet but all parts - I don't undestand negative comments about it, maybe Rosewill improved on quality control - are in perfect condition. I will come back if necessary.

Edit:

Fan rattling problem! I will open case to see if there is something I can do, otherwise RMA.

Update:

No possible mistake, I reinserted HDD, fixed everything properly with screws and same result. I hope the one I will receive as replacement is not going to do the same thing. I have noticed something important, with no HDD inserted the rattle is a lot less audible. Design problem? I coudn't say but I'll be updating once again when the replacement comes.

Special Instructions when Nothing Recognized / Update 2018: Using an 8tb HDD

Pros: (Update 2018: Took a chance and put in the 8tb HGST Deskstar NAS HDD to be used for storage. This size is larger then specified it can run, but it seems fine. I chose the NAS cause it uses less power then others. Sounds the same as my other 4tb version, heat feels ok, others are reporting larger drives are working for them. No problems with it so far after months of occasional use.)

Beautiful enclosure, I love em. Solid build, stong, sturdy even without feet.

Cons: (Update 2018: Something must have updated with my computer because I'm not really having this issue any more, not sure why.)

My computer/mobo is kinda dated I think, and I think it's configured differently or something. Most of the time, my pc won't recognize the enclosure immediately, but it always does eventually. Ultimately, after it's recognized, it's NEVER flakey. Never had a single issue.

Most of the time, I'll power on the enclosure, and hear the Windows chime (new device), but then nothing happens. After a minute or so, I will hear the Windows chime again (the disconnect sound). That's my cue to unplug the USB cord, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in while enclosure remains on. Recognized, done, never fails.

Alternately, I could power off and then on again, and it will recognize it that way, usually. Sometimes I'll just power on the device first and wait a minute before plugging in the usb, then it will see it after the minute. Other times, it'll just work right away when already plugged in. It varies.

I feel it's risky plugging/unplugging with the USB3, cause I was thinkin USB3 has some juice in there while the enclosure is powered ON, still not sure though. But I eventually tried it anyway, and it doesn't 'seem' to damage anything. Regardless, I'll usually (hot) unplug/re-plug if using USB2. When using USB3, I use the 'power off/on' method to be safe.

As for the SATA, it will only work if I power down my pc first, then start the enclosure before powering the pc back on.

I'm sure there's a fix to this minor inconvenience, but I haven't done enough research to bother.

Other Thoughts: I have two new ones and one old version and all still work great. Keep em clean and handle with care.

Great product,

Pros: well built
good connectors, and usb connector, good transformer
good value
like the blue light showing the HD is active

Cons: Not sure if this is a problem: The WD black that I installed has the circuitry board on top of the unit on the side of the top fan . Can this affect the life of the drive ? All my drives were always installed with the circuitry board at the bottom
No feet , I will install 4 felt pads

Other Thoughts: JUST PLACE AN ORDER FOR AN EXTRA ONE FOR MY SECOND WD BLACK 2To

eSATA? You kid me!

Pros: Solid construction. USB works fine. Accurate installation instructions.

Cons: Using eSATA, the system fails to recognize the drive after copying a few files and locks up (Win 7 Pro x64). Reboot, repeat, reboot, repeat, .............. I am not alone in having this problem.
The HDD itself is sound as evidenced by using the Rosewill box with its USB connection, and the computer's eSATA port functions correctly with another eSATA device.

Other Thoughts: Not recommended for either eSATA or just USB as there are less expensive boxes offering USB.
I am returning my purchase for refund. Very disappointed.

Rosewill External Enclosure 3.5 2018

Pros: eSATA
SATA I/II/III
8TB
USB 3.0

Cons: Nothing so far

Other Thoughts: Just wanted to post an updated review/input as I just purchased this from Newegg and the box shows specs have been upgraded from what's listed on the site. Just arrived today and the box lists model number RX-358 U3C and has the specs written above in Pros. Planned on attaching a photo but not seeing anywhere to do do unless it gives the option after this screen.

Solid Product

Pros: Bought to replace failed enclosure used to expand PVR. Works. First tried a Vantec eSATA product from another supplier as a replacement - was DOA and built with a large amount of plastic.
Switch to turn off fan is nice as fan a little loud for use near TV.
Nice solid all metal build.

Cons: Though is wide would have liked to see a support bracket to aid against tipping - like many other similar products provide.
Shipping time a little long ... a week.

Other Thoughts: May buy again ... if another all metal working product similar to the enclosure this one replaced is available, then would try that route first. Nice to know that have this one to fall back to.
Very happy with product. Working out of the box always nice. :)

A few notes.

Pros: Works at USB 3.0 Speeds with out issue.
Sturdy case design.
Great for use as a external storage device that needs to be available 24/7

Cons: The 80mm X 80mm X 10mm Fan started to fail the first day with clunky noises.
Hard to find a replacement fan that is 80mm X 80mm X 10mm...........
Buying a replacement fan off of I-Bay to replace that fan in question.
The fan on/off switch is flimsy and did not work at first without flipping it on and off a few time to get started. I have not touched the switch in fear of not turning on again.
Plastic side covers

Other Thoughts: I would like to see medal sides replace the plastic sides of the case and the fan on/off switch changed to the same switch that the power on/off is using. Transfer speed and drive support is excellent and this is really a good external case for a large mechanical hard drive in a ON ALL THE TIME scenario. I took one egg off for the fan issue that cost me a extra $6 for a new fan.

works perfect, xbox one external

Pros: silent fan, easy hard drive install, comes with installation screws, power on LED, drive usage LED, comes with USB 3.0 and esata cables, durable metal frame design, small and compact making it easy to fit on the top of the Xbox one s, works with Seagate Baracuda 3TB 3.5" Compute Drive model # ST3000DMA08.

Cons: LED lights are kind of too bright for in face actions even though they are pointed either up/down or side/side depending on the orientation you put it in.

Other Thoughts: it's perfect.
